Jeff Quest (Spywrite) chats with the author of Paranoid Visions,
Joseph Oldham. Paranoid Visions explores the history of the spy and
conspiracy genres on British television, from 1960s Cold War series
through 1980s conspiracy dramas to contemporary ‘war on terror’
thrillers. It analyses classic dramas including Tinker Tailor
Soldier Spy, Edge of Darkness, A Very British Coup, and Spooks.
This book will be an invaluable resource for television scholars interested in a new perspective on the history of television drama and intelligence scholars seeking an analysis of the popular representation of espionage with a strong political focus, as well as fans of cult British television and general readers interested in British cultural history.
